Study on behaviour targets Quebec's child-care system
by Caroline Alphonso, The Globe and Mail (of Canada), 2-Feb-06
Quebec's preschoolers are more aggressive than those elsewhere in Canada and their mothers show greater signs of depression, according to a new study that blames the province's universal child-care program.
The C.D. Howe Institute report released yesterday shows that despite government officials and child-care experts lauding Quebec's $7-a-day child-care program, children and mothers in the region are actually worse off...
The study found that aggression scores of Quebec preschoolers increased by 24 per cent after the daycare program was introduced...
Mothers with children in daycare, too, had higher depression scores relative to the average, probably because they were away from their youngsters so early on, according to one researcher...
"For other provinces who might be considering a model such as Quebec's, [we advise them] to keep their eyes open," said Kevin Milligan, co-author of the study and an assistant professor of economics at the University of British Columbia.
"They could expect some similar responses on the behavioural front from children in their provinces as well."
Unlike other provinces, all families in Quebec have access to a heavily subsidized daycare program. Parents pay only $7 a day and the government pays for the rest.

Quebec daycare bad for children by Kazi Stastna, The Gazette (of Montreal, Canada), 2-Feb-06 Quebec's much-heralded universal child-care program might be good for the economy, but not for the kids enrolled in it, a study by a Toronto-based think tank says...
"For almost every measure, we find an increased use of child care was associated with a decrease in their well-being relative to other children," the authors write.

Baby, you deserve better by Libby Purves, The Times, 14-Feb-06 Now (Steve Biddulph) risks his neck by cautioning that putting children under 3 into nurseries (day-cares) all day may seriously damage their development. He saw the best nurseries “struggle to meet the needs of very young children in a group setting”. The worst were “negligent, frightening and bleak — a nightmare of bewildered loneliness that was heartbreaking to watch”. He supported early nursery once; he has looked and recanted
Baby, you deserve better by Libby Purves, The Times, 14-Feb-06 is far more reassuring to head for a “professional” institution with a brochure. Besides, leaving a child so soon brings on a pang of guilt that is assuaged by feeling that expensive childcare is somehow, in the ghastly league-table* phrase, “adding value” to your child.
*League-table = A chart in which people or clubs are placed according to their performances.
Baby, you deserve better by Libby Purves, The Times, 14-Feb-06 Thus, nurseries flourish and, crucially, take in ever-younger children...
In attacks on Steve Biddulph, commentators will no doubt brandish reports showing that children who go to nursery do better at school: but look closely and such reports invariably refer to children using nurseries between 3 and 5 years old. Compared with a baby these are great big thumping* confident creatures: they can talk and tell their parents what they don't like. Smaller infants can't. If you want to be really miserable, watch a tape of the BBC's recent undercover filming of apparently respectable nurseries where clinging baby bewilderment was routinely met with crude cries of “Ow, shurrup whingeing**, Leanne!”.
*thumping = very large
** “Ow, shurrup whingeing = Oh, shut-up your whining!

Baby, you deserve better by Libby Purves, The Times, 14-Feb-06 There are good nurseries; there are probably babies reasonably well cared for in a group, if the staffing is consistent and skilled. But...this is a poor substitute for mother-love: Steve Biddulph is right to say so. A young baby needs a person not a place, not “affordable care” but devoted care.
Baby, you deserve better by Libby Purves, The Times, 14-Feb-06 Government must stop obsessing about tickbox* nursery “education” and think how to make it easier for families to organise personal babycare, not just how to squeeze them into a system where each childcare “place” means a mother out earning and paying tax.
*Tickbox = a square to put a check mark on a form
